6:03am
if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based upon my proposal and insist at that they vote on it right away. >> now, officially, a white house spokesman will only say this. while the president made clear he will move forward if copifor does not act. and will this poison the well in congress. marco rubio has kind of been the g.o.p. point person did not sound encouraged saying in a statement, quote, if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. and we talk about this, affecting an estimated 11 billion illegal immigrants currently in the country, but the president's plan would open up potential legal status

>> joining us is from the school of law. >> glad to be with you. >> one of my first questions, we think about the catholic church, it's been underfire and i know that you are very concerned about the moral decline of the world in general. so, when you think about the next pope, you've got to have to have somebody who will adapt and adhere to the catholic belief system. >> that's right, and i'm confident that the conclave will pick someone like that, an extremely good successor not just to benedict, but john paul iv. ap they had the history, the back-to-back, and i think there are a lot of cardinals out there who could fill those shoes. >> since you have an accurate track record of predicting the next pope, who is in the running? >> well, i'm not sure that i actually predicted it.

i hoped that he would be the choice. and-- >> that's close enough. >> i don't know. you know, at this point, i don't think there's any front runner, and i think it is really impossible to predict who it's going to be. but, obviously, you have your favorites choices. i think that las vegas has odds. i don't know how valuable that is, but i think that one leading candidates would be the cardinal from quebec, the head of the congregation of the bishops. he had been a student of cardial ratzinger years ago when the cardinal was a university professor and is really not only a brilliant man and thinker. >> and cardinal dolan a dark horse, a lot of people don't think an american would get the nod. what do you think. >> i think it would be most
6:18am
unlikely. the traditional would be that it's the most powerful country in the world and not have a pope from the most powerful country and also, i think we're viewed still as very young in our development. i actually, my choice, if it were fortunate enough to be an american, i would love to see american, but my choice would be cardinal burke who used to be the archbishop of st. louis and he's of the highest court in the vatican, sort of the chief justice john roberts of the vatican and he is again, a brilliant man and very, very understanding of what the problems are in the modern world. >> tucker: we're going to save this tape, because you've got a track record whether you admit it or not the. we appreciate it. >> there you go, thank you. >> thank you. >> 18 minutes after the hour on sunday morning, coming up on "fox & friends," a home bursting into flames and then

colleges, be careful not to without enrolling, and here is susanna kiplinger, and children, where should i be looking? >> depends are you looking at public or private schools. >> tucker: i'm open minded. the public, let's go to the best value. >> unc chapel hill. >> why? >> one of our favorites. number one 12 times in a row and we love it, affordable and great academic qualities and some numbers that you can look at. its four year graduation rate. # 77%. and if you or your kids qualify for the needs you'll got a financial package. >> tucker: and you say it has an 87% four year graduation right. that seems very high. >> it's an important number to look at, too, if you're
6:48am
getting out in four years you're not paying for the extra year of education. >> tucker: and people likes the school. >> people like the school and they're giving you that sort of help to get through and get graduated in four years. >> tucker: so, number three, university of florida. >> uh-huh. it dropped one place this year, still a great value, very, very good academically, have affordable. it's a big school, but got a very competitive admissions rate. a lot of students apply and not all get in. >> tucker: william and mary. >> good academic school. >> tucker: and some people are not aware it's a public school. >> it is, 12-1 faculty to student ratio. which means for every 12 students, one-on-one factors that you need. >> tucker: and university of maryland college park. >> the school has gone up every year, a four year tuition which ended in 2010
6:49am
and academically a great school. >> tucker: those are the top five private. yale is number one you said. >> i don't probably have to tell you that it's a good school academically. >> tucker: i've heard that. >> and also not that bad when it comes to cost. you might think that private schools are very, very expensive, but actually when you factor in aid it's just around $14,000 net price for the year and actually, the average price for a public school is around a little over $17,000, so, it's actually cheaper. >> tucker: so you've got rice number two, princeton three, duke four, and california and technology, five for the private schools. first of all, where is harvard and the schools with massive endowments charge anything the at all for tuition. >> harvard is in the top ten, but not the top five. and the reason that the schools charge tuition,
6:50am
schools charge tuition, but those very, very wealthy school make an effort to give a lot of aid. princeton i think the first school had a no loan policy. you shouldn't take loans out if you go there. and graduate with only $5,000 in debt. and their parents should either. get your child into princeton. thank you very much. >> thanks so much. >> tucker: coming up, the show "downton abbey" is a hit and why is it so popular, the political orientation and a does it mean you can get a good deal? probably not. we'll tell you what it means coming up. ♪ ♪ my mama told me you about thor shop around ♪ hi. hi.

>> there you are looking good this sunday morning. 6:53 is the time i'm anna kooiman. american airlines and u.s. airway one entity effectively, and with less competition can you get a good deal on tickets? here with helpful hints for us is travel expert mark murphy. good morning, thanks for being with us. first up we could possibly have more options so some fares to go down? supply and demand. it's making my mind blown. >> three major carriers control the vast majority of airline flights in the u.s. and going to make prices go up because it's almost. >> right. >> pseudo monopoly. but on the other side. american airlines and u.s. airs, more hubs, if you're flexible through to get to your end destination and might
6:55am
find some pluses. >> anna: and you might have to find a long layover. what about fare wars and they'll have to be competing with some of the smaller airlines. >> take southwest, air tran, jet blue. airlines like that are going to see prices rise and markets, i can go in there and operate more profitbly than the major carriers and therefore, pull some fares down. >> especially when you see the competition from the lower fare gist, legacy prices match. you're going to have that, but not as much as in the pass it's been a consolidation and we feel we get robbed with the fees we see. >> more fees, and the reason that the airlines do this, because there's transparent pricing on the internet. look at the internet and everyone can see what the price of the fare is. what they try to do is shift some of the costs that used to be built in the ticket price to the back and that way it's difficult for the consumers to compare and contrast prices.
6:56am
make sure you understand the full cost of the ticket. because those ancillary fees and make sure they're part of the purchase price. >> anna: and you say a travel agent can help. >> people don't understand how many combination and people spend hours and hours, trying to fine the best fares. these guys are pros, they know where to look, and where to find the combination and the ancillary freese and talk to the pro. they sell 60% for a reason. >> what about frequent flyer miles. >> one for the business travelers that accrue those and combine those miles and then cash them in at the much bigger network in terms of the airline. >> anna: thanks for the help today. mark murphy. 6:56 is the time on sunday morning. a university ordering protesters to acknowledge

7:01am
left out. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. and in the same breath. don't say merry christmas, right. >> tucker: wiccan, do you feel left out. >> clayton: yeah, i have my sage that i burn every morning on the show to make sure. >> anna: we let him do it. >> clayton: for the spirits. exactly. and welcome in to "fox & friends" on this sunday morning, thank you for spending your sunday morning with us. that's tucker carlson, anna kooiman and i'm clayton morris. >> anna: when it comes to immigration reform, congress isn't moving fast enough for president obama. >> clayton: the white house has drafted its own version of the immigration bill and that's not sitting well with some republicans. >> tucker: no, it's not. and doug luzader with the latest details on this. >> the president said he would act if congress won't and this may be a shot across the bow as a bipartisan group on capitol mill tries to hammer out a compromise.
7:02am
for many, the president's bill detailed in usa today will be a nonstarter because it will be seen as a form of amnesty. right out of the gate an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants could be affected. here is what the president just said in his weekly address. >> and it's time it harness the talent and ingenuity of hard working immigrants by finally passing comprehensive immigration reforms. securing our borders and a responsible path to earn citizenship and attracting the highly skilled prunes that will help create jobs. here are some of the specifics there would be this new, what they're calling lawful perspective immigrant visa, offering to provide provisional legal status. a criminal background check and fairly wide latitude. shongs they commit three crimes. spouses and currently in the country could be included.
7:03am
and well above 11 million and new provisions for border security. this is going to be a nonstarter on capitol hill according to the republican senator leading the charge on bipartisan immigration, reform, florida republican, marco rubio. here is his response. quote, if actually proposed, the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. under the proposed plan, illegal immigrants could move from provisional to full permanent legal residencesy in about eight years and officially the white house says a final bill has not been prepared. anna, tucker, clayton. >> clayton: you've been around washington a long time. a leaked reform makes its way into the usa today. how does that happen. >> and it's clearly being floated and again, to try to
7:04am
up the pressure with congress to let them know if we don't get something done, the president will move forward. in the past he's been reluctant to write legislation and this time around. >> clayton: a trial balloon. great to see you this morning, thanks so much. >> anna: four minutes after the hour this sunday morning, time for your headlines. oscar pistorius' family going on camera the first time since the blade runner was charged with murdering his girlfriend. the state's own case, including its forensic evidence strongly refutes any possibly of premeditated hurd. >> his uncle says that oscar is numb with shock and grief and planning a future with model reeva steenkamp. and the first part of the reality show she starred in started last night and included this chilling clip. >> and i'm going to miss you all so much. and i love you very, very mu
7:05am
much. >> anna: so eerie considering the circumstances. and overnight, two military jets away from a snow fly zone where president obama is vacationing in florida. the small plane was forced to land at a field in a town of stuart north of palm beach. f.a.a. is now investigating this incident. like a scene out of the movie, the posh hotel stealing 2 million from the case. >> clayton: where is george clooney. >> anna: the case is now boarded up and believed one of the suspected a distracted an employee and the escape was apparently assisted by faulty surveillance cameras in the lobby. and an australian backpacker who got lost in the backpack alive tonight thanks to contact lens solution.
7:06am
18-year-old same woodhead got lost during a jog last week and ran out of water. when he searched through the backpack, his dad left a box of contact lenses inside and drank the solution in the heat. and search teams found him three days later and now he's just fine. >> and now great vision as a result of that, too. >> anna: forever and ever. >> tucker: it's yummy, that contact lens solution. that's the latest. >> good pun. please share with the class, don't keep it to yourself. let's talk about this. middle class, certainly during the campaign between republicans and democrats, everyone was throwing around the term middle class trying to appeal to the middle class. and the president used that term a number of times. take a listen. >> a rising, thriving, middle class. he we won't grow the middle class by shifting cost of health care or-- >> a growing economy that
7:07am
creates good middle class jobs. >> most middle class parents can't afford $200 a week. >> work your way into the middle class. >> new ladders of opportunity in the middle class for all willing to climb them. >> this kind of prosperity, broad, shared, built on a thriving middle class. >> anna: and the only term we heard more was just to be clear. >> tucker: what is the middle class, new census numbers analyzed and a massive disparity between states. the middle class in some states is very different from that in others. for example, the highest middle class number, maryland. the median number is 67,469 dollars. >> clayton: i was surprised it wasn't as high as california. maryland the highest there, or that california wasn't as high as maryland. >> tucker: and i'll tell you why, maryland's numbers are high because it's suburban maryland outside of washington that benefits from government spending. >> clayton: there you go. >> tucker: as the percentage
7:08am
of our economy is taken up by government spending rises the suburbs around d.c. get richer. >> and the employees on average about what, 15 to 20% more than their civilian counterparts. so they're making more salary than the folks who benefit. >> tucker: they can never be fired. >> anna: and the salaries of these people is only part of the story. i mean, a lot of middle class are dealing with different struggles, whether they can't find work or they have a job and aren't making enough money so they're trying to piece multiple part-time jobs together in some distances. let's look at our home state. >> pennsylvania, for example, my home state. middle class income where you would need to be $50,000 to be considered middle class in pennsylvania and even that seems like a blanket statement, right? when you've got cities like philadelphia. obviously, costs more to live there and pittsburgh more than to live in harrisburg or gettysburg, the blanket statements are interesting. >> anna: in my home

9:45am
let's not have a two week or three week period of waiting before we begin the conclave. it will probably happen sometime around 7th or 8th of march. >> so some of your picks. you have laid out some of the folks around the world that might be up for the job. first one, cardinal tagel. he is from manila, philippines. he is the youngest and let me explain this word. it's able to be pope or possible candidate for being a pope. papabilay and it's best said with a glass of red wine. but this cardinal is very young. 55 years old and, of course,
9:46am
from part of the world that has never had a pope. very interesting and candidate so to speak. we have timothy dolan from new york. an unlikely candidate because the cardinals don't like to have a superpower to be the pope, but you never know. cardinal dolan has taken on a position of leadership in the united states and around the world and he is known for being happy and cardinals recognize we need that. >> anna: and he is 53. he is not something that would, deteriorating health and old age is cited. >> newew ples dent that the pope has said of resigning from the post, i think the cardinals will be more open to the idea of electing a younger pope. they know he will be in for
9:47am
30-40 years. so a few others we have also on our screen, we have probably the leading candidate cardinal of milan. there are 28 italians. that is the strongest bloc there is. over 50% of those cardinals are also european. they may want to give it back to europe. >> and challenges that the church is fay go some of the younger folks involved and some of that european zest back and they have been struggling in europe in relation to the catholic church. some of the other areas, latin america and africa, but precisely the europe they may need more help. getting a younger audience. >> we had pope benedict from germany and 500 years before
9:48am
that there were all italians. a pope from the third world is a lot of talk. in answer to your question, think it's important to recognize whether you are a catholic or not, the fact the papacy of the catholic church is the biggest, strongest most broad defender of traditional values. we're going to hear a lot of reporting over the neck few weeks of people saying, is he going to be liberal pope or conservative pope, by the definition of pope he is going to be conservative. in the sense that he is called to conserve the biblical teachings. republican or democrat -- that is all bunk. what they are looking at who can help best transmit and defend those core teachings going forward. it will an exciting two weeks.
